We had a very special meal as a family in a beautiful setting. Would recommend as a special evening. For the quality of food it is reasonably priced.

The artichoke salad tasted like it contained pre-prepared artichokes from jars. The stuffed rabbit was overcooked and not particularly special. The dessert was excellent:...More
